Moving to "Plan B" for planned & major giving in 2020


This webinar has been approved for 1.0 CFRE credit.


The Coronavirus pandemic will define the rest of 2020 — and most likely the following few years. It will impact the economy, how organizations work, the ways people (and nonprofits) engage with each other, and so much more. 


That’s why it’s incredibly important for nonprofit professionals to make new plans now or to adjust their fundraising objectives. Doing this will help you hit goals and get the internal resources you need to not just survive, but to thrive, in the coming year.


More than 750 nonprofit professionals joined our last webinar and sent us hundreds of questions about nonprofit work during COVID-19. Here are a few of those questions:

  • How will the pandemic and oncoming recession affect our fundraising goals for the rest of this year?
  • What will this mean for major and planned giving teams?
  • How do we plan ahead?
  • How do we ask for support and resources from leadership and board members?
  • What are some creative ways to hit fundraising goals and engage supporters over the next six to nine months without in-person meetings or events?

In this webinar, Patrick Schmitt, the Co-CEO of FreeWill, shares strategies and examples for how nonprofits can adjust their 2020 fundraising plans to keep moving forward.
